As educators and as citizens of the world, we are called to challenge systemic inequities and structures upholding racist practices. Join veteran teacher Matthew C. Winner in an exploration of how to make diverse voices visible and valued on your bookshelves, your instructional practices, and within your school culture through anti-bias anti-racist practices. No experience or prior knowledge needed. Just a willingness to acknowledge what you don't know, what you need to unlearn, and that you're ready to take the first step (and the one after that).
